A recently produced resource displaying the truth about venomous snakes (content verified by Andrew Durso ) I loved this graphic so much I asked Liz if we could publish it on here on the frog blog. Snake myths have been coming u a lot lately on social media and I wanted to provide this excellent resource for addressing these myths —remember, if you have been bitten by a venomous snake, you probably deserved it. Liz is an amazingly talented illustrator, UGA graduate and former member of the UGA Herpetological Society. Click here to see more of her incredible work.
These tasty little worms are offered to Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders (Ambystoma cingulatum), and gobbled right up. We currently culture 2 species of flight-less fruit fly, 4 species of roach, 3 species of isopod, 3 species of annelid, and we receive 17,000 crickets in the mail every other week from @premiumcrickets Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm #livefood #invertebrates #lumbriculusvariegatus #Blackworms #Ambystoma #Ambystomatidae #Ambystomacingulatum #AmphibianConservation
Such an amazing and spectacularly colored species. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with them thanks to the generosity of @adamwbland and the Vivarium at the Manchester Museum. The Blue-sided, out Yellow-eyed Leaf Frog is critically endangered with numbers still declining in the wild. Several months ago we had an international collaborative phyllomedusine (and Anotheca) exchange with the Vivarium and look forward to working with them more in the future. #Agalychnis #Agalychnisannae #Phyllomedusinae #LeafFrog #CaptiveBreeding #CaptiveBred
One of the shyest in the Dendrobatidae, D. auratus spends a lot of time just out of sight. We have 10 of them on exhibit, though so you can usually see a few of these beautiful frogs at any time. #Dendrobatesauratus #Dendrobatidae #Dendrobates #PoisonFrog
